Okay, ladies. I have this interesting problem that I have encountered recently and I would like some input. During my year or more of dancing, I have experienced many "incompatibility" problems, but not this one. I have been taking lessons with a particular girl for many months. On a scale of one to ten, in terms of how we get along in the lesson, I would say it is a 10. To be honest, I think there is mutual attraction between us, and as for dancing in the lesson I would say it is a 10 also. We dance perfectly and comfortably together during the lesson, and we sometimes compliment each other on how awesome the other is to dance with. Until recently though, I never danced with her outside of lessons, for a variety of reasons. One reason being that I had had a confidence problem for a while and basically made it a rule not to dance with the better women. I spend most of my time helping the real beginners and general beginner level women. Recently, I decided that I have to move up "the food chain" and start dancing with some women who are more capable, since I felt that I was hindering my development be dancing with beginners only, who cannot do even half of what I want to be doing. So, I ask this women to dance one night and I could not believe her reaction. She almost fell off her stool. Literally, I thought she was going to be sick. I didn't know whether she was going to faint or throw up on me. So, finally she recovers and we dance. It didn't go to bad, but she was laughing and giggling a lot. Since then, I have asked her to dance a few times, and every time it seems to get worse. She continues to give me the strangest expression when I ask her to dance. She doesn't seem too excited by the whole deal, and when we dance it does not really go well to say the least. She definitely lacks her usual competence and does not seem to be comfortable, which causes me to not be comfortable. Thus, needless to say, things do not go too well. The last time I danced with her, I actually ended up accidently mashing her breast with my hand because she was jumping around in confusion somehow when I was trying to lead something. Anyway, I have asked only one female friend who dances salsa about this and her theory was that it could possibly indicate that the girl actually really likes me or has a crush on me. My friend claims that the last guy in the world she wants to dance with is a guy that she likes, because she says she absolutely cannot dance with him. Does this sound reasonable to anyone? Any other ideas or suggestions? Any input would be appreciated.
